The Future Is This Moment...

written by: Sofia Kioroglou


Can you see how the sun curves
west towards the endless sea?
Can you feel the soothing breeze caressing your cheeks?
Keep watching the seagulls skimming along the crests of foam

Try to catch a glimpse of that streak of gold
on the horizon before the sun hides for another
night's rest and savor the taste of salt
as you lick your lips, swirling it around your palate

The end of the world is not nigh
Look at all these kids cavorting like
the future is now, the future is this moment,
the future is that cry you wiped away after falling
